Finding the right gift for dad is all about matching your present to his personality and hobbies.

Sports fans will cheer for raglan-sleeve tees from Majestic, field caps from New Era and bathrobes from McArthur, all sporting their favorite team's logo. For the dad who always makes time for family, show your appreciation with a timepiece like Victorinox Swiss Army or Emporio Armani watches that feature stainless steel and leather accents. For the dad on the go, Tumi's T-Tech hardside spinner luggage rolls through busy checkpoints with ease. Cuisinart's versatile compact gas grill will encourage him to get his grill on anywhere – indoors or out. To help dad treat himself, Macy's gift cards are available in any amount and let him take the driver's seat for his gift this year. For shoppers who need assistance finding just the right item, Macy's By Appointment, a complimentary personal shopping service, makes the hunt for the perfect present simple and easy no matter your budget.
